Lady Low—Lyrics

Lady Low

Words and music by Christopher Kent

Lady Low, I like the way you go in circles in my head
Lady Low, the candles burn so slowly
Dancing over my bed
Settling slowly, like tea leaves in a cup of tea
We wait for our fortunes to be painted in some gallery
And just when I think I’m turned around, losing ground
You come smiling, and you call me
Smiling, yeah we’ll all be smiling
And you call me down

Lady Low, I think I’d like to know those colors that you see
Lady Low, I watch your shadows come and go
Like patterns in a tapestry
There’s so many good times
And sweet dreams we’ve been waiting for
Slowly fitting together like stained glass in a chapel door
And just when I think the whole damn world is upside down
You come smiling, and you call me
Smiling, yeah we’ll all be smiling
And you call me down

Even after all the hard times we’ve been through
I always end up coming back to you

To my Lady Low, to watch your candles glow
Like moonlight on a cloudy sky
Lady Low, we sit and watch each other grow
Like flowers from a jug of wine
And all of those good times
And sweet dreams we’ve been waiting for
Come rising inside us like bubbles from the ocean floor
And just when I’m thinking we might never reach the ground
You come smiling, and you call me
Smiling, yeah we’ll all be smiling
And you call me down
